OWNERS Zoe and Meghan Tulleners 243 Boundary Street West End QLD What inspired you to open Alphabet? We have both worked in hospitality for a really long time and we wanted to use what we learned (both the good and the not-so-good) to create a space that has good food and coffee, and good service. Oh and cake! Tell us about your food philosophy… We’re super passionate about supporting our local growers, and creating a menu that is approachable, seasonal and comforting. We work closely with a small group of farmers and growers who use regenerative farming practices and closed-loop systems. Why is community important to you? Community is the only reason we’re able to own Alphabet and do what we love. We’ve been supported by our friends and family right from our inception. From borrowed kitchens to…

WARNING: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are warned that the following article references people who are deceased. I grew up in a very political household. I was taken to rallies as a child and we regularly talked about land rights at the dinner table. And yet, as an Aboriginal person growing up in metropolitan Sydney, I sometimes struggled to find my place and identity. I always knew where I was from but I grew up off-Country and there were very few, if any, other Aboriginal kids at my school. Outside of home, I couldn’t see or feel very much around me that reflected who I was or that anchored me to my cultural identity.

TALKING POINT In a historic first, planning has begun for formal treaty negotiations between Victoria’s First Peoples’ Assembly and the state’s government. The meeting follows more than seven months of community consultation and marks the start of a process that aims to create the framework for Victoria’s treaty negotiations. The first session, held in late July, will (among other things) establish a dispute resolution process and set timelines. Victoria is the first state in Australia to begin official meetings, and organisers hope it’s the first step towards a national effort to formalise a treaty for all of Australia’s First Nations people.
